WhatsApp may soon fix the most annoying thing about group chats

WhatsApp may soon add expiration dates to group chats so you don’t have to deal with a lot of clutter in your inbox.

If you open your Whatsapp today, we expect you to find a backlog of abandoned chats for long-delivered group projects, coordinating events that happened years ago , and talking to school friends you haven’t seen in a decade. . Most of these you may have long forgotten, with unnecessary chats clogging up your smartphone storage with messages and images from chats you no longer need.

According to a leak, WhatsApp is set to get a feature that will help unclog your inbox called ‘Expiring Groups’ (via WaBetaInfo (Opens in a new tab)). When the feature is added you should find it on the group info page; using it you can set when you will be prompted to ‘clean’ the group choosing either a day, a week, or a custom date. You can also remove the expiration date of the group.

Based on the leaked screenshot, each user has to set their own expiration date for the group, and it looks like WhatsApp won’t delete the group automatically. Instead, it seems to remind you that it might be time to leave the group or delete it, but the decision is yours.
